Don't use uranium as a fuel. The only reason to do that is to create plutonium... i.e. bombs. Thorium is the way to go.

Mining thorium is safer and more efficient than mining uranium. Thorium's ore, monazite, generally contains higher concentrations of thorium than the percentage of uranium found in its respective ore. This makes thorium a more cost efficient and less environmentally damaging fuel source.

For far too long Ishihara was allowed to mouth the most egregious remarks, and no one seemed / seems to have held them accountable in the Japanese media. At last, something has: Time.

If this destructive storm turns out to be a single entity, it will become the longest path of a single tornado in U.S. history, as well as the first so-called quad-tornado, meaning it swept through four states — northeast Arkansas, southeast Missouri, northwest Tennessee and western Kentucky,  Stay safe People!

Here we go again. The wealthy nations had a chance to vaccinate populations who were most vulnerable to the disease, those poor nations who would most likely incubate the virus to new mutations... the horse has bolted.

More of a cycle, footpath, atop a river embankment, maybe the Tama River? For me, evokes coming darker, colder days. The clothes she is wearing, the (unnecessary) jacket for the dog, the long angled shadows in sepia light.

UKUK is right, some of the structures you see that serve as homes are very basic. Govt needs to support lower income people with better homes. Tin on wooden frames isn't going to hack it.

@Johnson, you obviously don’t understand why Trump happened, or why Brexit is here. Neo-liberalism has caused havoc and people have had enough. Regionalism is the way. Not globalism.

Posted in: Poll watchers emerge as a flashpoint in battle over ballots See in context

The incredible thing is that -- for example -- Wisconsin and Pennsylvania GOP legislators ordered officials not to count postal votes before election day. So, GOP legislators said the votes mustn't be counted before the election. And then the president says they mustn't be counted after the election. As usual they rely on their supporters not to grasp this fact and to fight for it.

Push them further Sacha. Cut right through their sensibilities and expose their prejudices. Top draw. Rudy is rude and needs talking to by the police. That was a long, “shirt tuck in”. HE is disgusting.

Posted in: Strong typhoon sweeps over Japan's southernmost islands See in context

Typhoon 9 is a serious and dangerous category 4 typhoon.


It passed by the main island with winds of up to 54m/s, they are extremely dangerous winds and they are still blowing hard. The majority of homes in Okinawa are made from RCB or concrete blocks. Traditional homes are very low and have stone walls around them, however, over the last decade or so there are certainly more wooden homes being built. A really bad idea, no matter how “advanced” the build is. You’re opening yourself and others up to disaster. The climate “loves” wood here, and two storey -- or more! -- wooden homes -- with eaves!! -- will be damaged or totally destroyed in Cat 3 and above typhoons. That debris then becomes airborne and then causes mayhem all over the place.
